We came with family of five and stayed 3 nights instead of the intended 5. Freddie is a great host trying his best to please everybody. His menus and quality cooking at dinner time with explanation speeches are singular and unique. We slept in one of the rooms close to the beach with bunkbeds for the children which they loved. For the children Freddie also had some games available to play which is a nice touch and reminds me of my back packer times.
This place though already operating since 2005 still breaths pioneering air and not really a good place for young children (ours are 14,12,7). There is no room to play outside and the beach was swept away by rough weather and only rocks remained. There was a place 100 meters away, but you have to go over the rocks to get there.Please also note that there are a lot of mosquitos, lot's of people smoke everywhere (including Freddie) and you will meet other vermin. So all in all, this is a remote place where Freddies makes the most of, but not good for families and not enough to do to keep them occupied for more than 3 days anyway. Snorkling is ok though. Besides 3 of us also got sick from something we ate, but you can expect this to happen in places like Aceh, so good hygiene is paramount. And Freddies could improve on this for sure, so that the great dinners are not spoiled afterwards because of it.
